Website Malware Checker
Website malware, also known by web-based malware is currently a threat to Internet security. Website malware attacks can have serious security consequences.
The Internet plays a vital role in our everyday lives. There are millions of web services available on the internet, including social networking sites and content sharing sites, office apps, entertainment sites, education sites, and office applications. Cybercriminals are increasingly using the Internet to spread malware through the Web, and have used thousands of malicious URLs.
Every time a user visits malicious websites, web malware infiltrates their computer. Hackers can then take control of a victim’s computer after they have been infected by web-based malware. Hackers then use this computer to commit various cybercrimes, including spamming, distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS), and stealing bank credentials, among others.
Web-based malware could affect your website in these ways:
Send your visitors to malicious websites
If visitors to your website are redirected to a different website, especially a suspicious one, you can be certain that your website was affected by malicious redirects.
Cybercriminals have access to your website through backdoors
Backdoors, a type of malware, can be used as an entry point by cybercriminals to gain and keep persistent access to your website. Cybercriminals can easily gain access to your website and modify its appearance, reveal confidential customer data, or do other malicious activities. You may not be able to see a backdoor file, or they may go unnoticed.
Modify the appearance of your site
Cybercriminals can deface your website and replace its content with their message. This is most often used to promote a political or religious agenda. This can cause visitors to leave your site by blocking their access and/or causing them to be shocked by the disturbing message.
Hidden in ads
Malvertising, a web-based malware technique, spreads malware by getting users to click on an advertisement or to download a driver. This will cause an automatic infection whenever a visitor visits the site. Cybercriminals have two options: upload their malicious ad to an advertising network that distributes it across multiple websites simultaneously, or inject malicious code into the advertisement.
Mark your website with a warning, and remove it from search engines
Google and other search engines like it use the blacklisting method to continuously review websites for malware. They may also remove infected sites from search results to stop users from visiting infected sites. Search engines can place warnings on blacklisted websites to protect users from malicious content. The warning informs users that the site is infected and prohibits them from visiting it. This can cause a drop in traffic and even lead to visitors leaving your website.
Add spam content to your website
Search engine optimization (SEO), spam is when strange comments, links, or traffic drops suddenly appear on your website. This spam uses two methods to help websites rank well in search results. Obtaining links from other sources and using relevant search terms on a page. By simply inserting large numbers of files with malicious links and unrelated keywords into your website, cybercriminals can easily cause a decline in search rankings. This can lead to a significant drop in website visits.
